Camping trips are unforgettable experiences, but for them to be a success they often require a lot of planning in advance.
Anyone stepping into the great outdoors needs to be prepared for anything to happen. Fortunately, there is plenty of amazing and reliable gear out there, but if you're serious about your camping experience, you don't just want good, you want the best. To be frank, there is no brand more reliable than Yeti.
Founded in 2006, Yeti was born with a simple idea: perfect the outdoor excursion with reliable goods you can use everyday — outdoorsman gear meant strictly for the devoted outdoorsman, one that can take the abuse that comes when handling nature. As of 2021, Yeti has continued to thrive and be the go-to, one-stop-shop for the nature-loving camper. Here are five Yeti essentials every camper needs before they pitch a tent.
YETI Crossroads Packing Cubes
When you're camping all your things are going to be stuffed in tight quarters on a road trip, so it's very useful to have some kind of packing organizer. Instead of scrounging around for socks and toothpaste, you can sort them into neat cubes with a packing organizer. Available in three different sizes, The Medium Cube is useful when organizing a change of clothes after hitting the river. And the Large Cube is a reliable go-to when grabbing a few extra pairs of pants, a tarp, or your favorite rain jacket. This is the perfect tool for any kind of traveling and soon enough you'll wonder how you ever traveled without it.
YETI Tundra Hard Cooler Family
You'll probably be eating a lot when you're camping, especially if you have a large family, so you'll definitely need a cooler to store your goods in. Yeti sells soft and hard coolers for every kind of purpose. Are you planning a massive family getaway? Are you tired of those mass-produced coolers that lose their cold insulation once the weather gets warm? Are you sick of the coolers that break when you stand on them or are easily opened by nature's hungry wildlife? The Tundra® Hard Cooler Family is meant to resolve all of those frustrating issues and give you and your family peace of mind so you can get back to enjoying your trip. The ice will stay cold and the food won't be crammed or squished thanks to the Cooler's wide interior. It even comes with a complimentary dry goods basket.
YETI Rambler 14 oz Mug with Magslider Lid
You'll certainly need a lot of coffee and tea to keep yourself awake and alert when you're camping. Yeti offers shatterproof rambler mugs that are much more durable than any other kind of mug you'll find on the market. The Rambler® 14 oz. Mug is one of the toughest camp mugs there is. Unlike other mugs, this mug features a double-wall vacuum-insulated body that protects your hands from both hot and cold contents while keeping your coffee, chili, oatmeal, ice cream, or whatever else, well-insulated. Not to mention the lid and mug are both dishwashers safe, making them easy to clean. The MagSlider™ Lid in particular adds an additional barrier of protection to prevent heat or cold from escaping. Regardless of what you need cooled or heated, the Rambler Mug should be a staple for any camper.
The Yeti French Terry Hoodie Pullover
If you're going to be camping or crashing outside, a number of warm sweatshirts and jackets are essential to keep you insulated against the cold. Enjoy cool nights outdoors in this light-yet-warm pullover hoodie by Yeti.
The French Terry sweatshirt features a textured chenille logo patch and thick leather cord adjusters that help elevate its style and sophistication. Made from a 10 oz. cotton and polyester blend, the French Terry is available in Navy, Black, and Highlands Olive, and is perfect for any occasion where you'll need to bundle up.
The Yeti LoadOut GoBox Gear Case
If you're camping, you're going to want a place to keep all the odds and ends that you'll need in the middle of the night when hanging out alone in the woods. Yeti offers waterproof, near-unbreakable load-out boxes that are guaranteed to protect your gear. Having your equipment accessible and protected is non-negotiable for a successful camping trip. The Yeti LoadOut® GoBox™ Gear Case is waterproof, dustproof, stackable, and meant to store your must-have tools until you need to get up and go.
